Q: How long does a visit to the lab take? 
Normally, studies involve a single visit to the lab and last about 45 minutes. The researcher you contact will provide more detailed information.

Q: What does a visit to the lab entail? 
Studies are structured as child-friendly games, (e.g., computer games, puppet shows) and children receive a small prize (e.g., certificate, toy) to take home.

Q: What will I learn about my child's development? 
We examine the average performance of large groups of children and compare different ages or conditions. Results are available on our website and newsletters.

Q: I signed up to participate at my child's preschool/camp/daycare. What does that entail? 
We bring short games to these sites and invite children to participate in our games. These games typically last 5-10 minutes, and because they are so short, children may participate in more than one game during their session.
